The Fresh & Onlys

Frisco's dark garage powerhouse, Fresh & Onlys returns with another full length and the promise of much more on the horizon. Grey-Eyed Girls feels darker than its predecessor, moodier and wrapped just a little bit tighter. This isn't the loose cuffed band that popped up on their earliest 7"s but the shift in coloring doesn't let them stray from Tim Cohen's lock-tight vocals and distinct persona. Lyrically he's still the same as ever and no matter how much studio polish, how dark the guitars or how loose the strum, Cohen remains an engaging central figure. The interplay between Cohen's style and Sartin's psych aesthetics seem to be hammering out a dark pop that's just a bit blurry on the edges and perfectly crisp at the center. This marks their starting point towards a more studio heavy album and it seems that this is a band that can use that environment to their advantage. Can't wait to hear what's next.
